9781782117476: Fear of Dying
Revue de presse :

Jong taps into a wider revolution in older women's lives ... Fear of Dying examines in minute detail every older woman's anxiety about her body ... Jong's creating a forum for discussion ... Older women were also avid readers of Fifty Shades of Grey. After that, what else could shock? Only Erica Jong * The Sunday Times * A wise, warm, witty take on the taboo that replaced sex * Daily Mail * Vividly written * The Times * I loved Fear of Dying. I found it irreverent, funny, tender and very wise and it made me feel more alive -- RACHEL JOYCE * The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry * How she was able to deal with all these sensitive issues and still make the book funny is amazing. I loved reading it -- WOODY ALLEN It's going to happen to all of us and yet talking about it seems taboo. Just as she once ripped the lace modesty vest off sex, Erica Jong has now exposed death in all its immodesty -- SHIRLEY CONRAN * author of Lace * Fear of Flying was a liberating hymn to sex: Fear of Dying adds despatches from the dark side and becomes a hymn to love -- Fay Weldon Erica Jong has done it again! Fear of Dying is a big, bawdy, beautifully-written romp through online hookups, female friendships, children grappling with adulthood and parents negotiating with death. Fear of Dying is big, warm-hearted, generous book that will satisfy Jong's longtime fans and delight her new readers -- JENNIFER WEINER Moving and deeply poetic, Fear of Dying is a compelling novel that truly understands the process of aging. With astonishing images on every page, Erica Jong gives us a veiled spiritual autobiography with an unstoppable quality, a narrative momentum that held me from first to last as it seamlessly unfolds from Jong's previous work, yet with sharp new edge, giving us a wise book, a book to savour -- JAY PARINI Erica Jong has written a whip-smart, insightful, hilarious and ridiculously relatable new novel ... Destined to be called an instant classic, I could not put this stunning book down. In 1973, Fear of Flying was the book we needed, now the book we need is Fear of Dying -- JULIE KLAM Erica Jong fans, rejoice! Her new novel, the cleverly and aptly titled Fear of Dying, is a truth-teller's dream. In it, Jong and her alter egos face life's most difficult challenges, head on and all at once. As the great poet William Butler Yeats wrote, "the only two things worth writing about are sex and death," and in Fear of Dying, Jong takes on both. Along the way, she also tells the story of a marriage that grows happier despite all. This wise book, written in prose gorgeous enough to make one swoon, will delight and enrich the lives of everyone who reads it -- ROSEMARY DANIELL Fear of Dying is the perfect spirited, funny bookend to Erica Jong's classic Fear of Flying. In this lighthearted, sexy and wise romp of a novel, Jong explores some deep truths about aging, family, love and marriage after sixty. This novel is a wonderful, readable blend of entertainment and wisdom. I loved it! -- Susan Cheever When I interviewed Jong 40 years ago, she called Fear of Flying "a declaration of independence". With its feisty violation of the verbal and sexual taboos of women's writing, and insistence that female artists should have all the freedom of male artists, "it was a counterphobic book". Fear of Dying is counterphobic too ... a literary Joan Rivers ... Jong has turned the page, and as a writer she still has a lot to say -- Elaine Showalter * Guardian * For young women of my generation, the story of Isadora Wing and her search for no-strings, satisfying sex was daring and startling and wonderful. It was like, "I am not the only woman who has fantasies - sexual or otherwise". When I met Erica Jong, not long after the book was published, I couldn't even speak because I was so in awe --Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur :

It is the winter of 1985. Hope Farm sticks out of the ragged landscape like a decaying tooth, its weatherboard walls sagging into the undergrowth. Silver's mother, Ishtar, has fallen for the charismatic Miller, and the three of them have moved to the rural hippie commune to make a new start. But here, at just thirteen, she is thrust into an unrelenting adult world, and the walls begin to come tumbling down, with deadly consequences.
